Class 2 Links
This is a mixed-age class made up of children from Year 1 and Year 2.
The teacher for class 2 is Miss Nash.
On a morning year 1 children are taught by Mrs Brooke-Mawson and year 2 by Miss Nash. In these sessions children will cover Maths, English and phnoics. On an afternoon all children come back together to cover other subject areas.
The support assistants for class 2 are Mrs Judson, MrsPinfield, MrsStaves and Mrs Ryder.
In English, we study units based on the primary frameworks, including fiction, non-fiction and poetry. These units are allocated to each group depending on the age and stage of the children.
In Maths, we follow the primary framework for Maths, visiting a variety of units of study each term covering a range of topics including counting and understanding number, calculating, using and applying maths, investigations, shape, measures and data handling.
A daily phonics session is taught based on the 'Letters and Sounds' framework which is adapted to meet the needs of the individual child. Additional work is taken from 'Jolly Phonics'.
We follow the Oxford Reading Tree scheme up to NC level 3, when novels by popular children's authors and information texts are introduced.
Foundation subjects are taught in the afternoon in classes, using a topic based approach and covering all areas of the National Curriculum and the Early Years Framework.
Class 2 have PE on a Wednesday and a Thursday. Please can you ensure that they have an appropriate PE kit on these days.
At the end of the year year 2 children will take SATs and year 1 a phonics check. Therefore, it is important that children read often at home, practice their phonic skills and complete their homework.
